This article present is a webdiary of the installation of a XEN-based virtualized server. The Dom0 of choice is OpenSolaris, since it provides the nifty features of ZFS.
We are buying a fairly powerful machine, a:
– 2xQuadcore XEON 2.2.6 Ghz 8MB cache
– 24 GB RAM
– 6 x 1TB Seagate 7200 RPM hot-swap SATA disks (32MB cache)
This will be soon installed with OpenSolaris and we will try to virtualize with XEN, to host DomU with ubuntu (old and new), and maybe a Windows VM.
